Leeds 3-4 Millwall

 

hahahaha

 

Good, good. Just what we wanna hear.

 

 

 

The traore goal - you could just kind of feel it, it was definitely coming, he's had another storming game today. Him or Downing for my MOTM.

Wow, even Traore has scored  :exclamation:  :huh:

 

What a time to be alive.

 

Do you actually like ANY of our players?

 

Yes I do.

 

It's his first goal for us in about 40 games.  For an attacking player I believe that's slightly below average?

 

Wasn't necessarily on about Adama, you've both directly and indirectly slated a few of our players today.

 

I think I've 'slated' Gestede sort of but not really and Traore sort of but not really.  Anyone else?

Pointed out Randolph is poor with the ball at his feet.

Can we just play all of our remaining games away from home we seem to have our tactics nailed on. Great result but only Leeds seem to have slipped up badly today, shame.

 

well Bristol lost point yesterday and wolves lost today (but I guess we dont think we can reach them?)

Oh no, I said our GK isn't good with the ball at his feet in a joke  :(  He really isn't good with the ball at his feet though is he?  Anything else you have a problem with?  Might as well get it all out now.

I think despite today Wolves are way gone over the horizon along with Derby if I to be honest. Villa, Fulham and Sheff U winning was not good but at least Leeds came a cropper. We need Sheff Wed to do us a favour now against Cardiff, this is going to be really tight for those play off places.

Just returning to the important topic of the day, I was wondering the same thing about Rudy's name. I actually have a programme from Cardiff from 2013 when he played for them, which has him listed as Rudolphe Gestede.

 

Edit: Transfermarkt has his name as Rudolphe Philippe Michel Camille Gestede, so there you go.

 

Camille is great.

The top 2 we'll probably struggle to reach, Bristol City not that far in front of us.

    • But you don't see it EVERY time and players feigning death when the ball is in a dangerous area because the ref has to stop play as was suggested by boro-unger 🙂 I admit that the same discription about the keepers being fully functional is not present in the english wording of the IFAB rulebook. Strange that it's different in the Danish text. It still doesn't change the fact that Arsenal got lucky, because if the ref had seen De Gea was down he would have blown the whistle immediatley.
    • We're going by the English version of the rules, not your crazy moon language
    • You absolutely see players fake head injuries, seems every game someone goes down clutching their face despite zero contact. There's a preference and prioritisation to stop play when the keeper is injured, but no law stating it needs to happen. It's at the ref's discretion for exactly the reason we saw yesterday, to stop keepers from feigning injuries to break up opposition attacks. Only person at fault is De Gea for thinking it was appropriate to hurl himself to the floor before the ball was even cleared.
    • The laws don't say that though. Specifically, the English language version of the IFAB Laws of the Game that the Premier League will be using does not say that. I''ve read every section which contains the word keeper or goalkeeper, all 128 instances, and it's not mentioned. The referee did nothing wrong by not blowing because De Gea was feigning/exaggerating injury.
    • I can't be bothered to sift through an english version of the rulebook, but I saw a link to the Danish version of the international rules and it specifically says, that the keeper at all times must be fully functional ie. not injured and if he is not then the ref must immediatly stop play. It would be odd if the rules aren't the same since they are international rules by IFAB. So yes, the ref should have stopped play, which they usually do whenever a keeper drops to the floor and looks injured. Had he blown before Rowe took the shot it wouldn't have stood. As it were the refereeing team looked lost and I imagine the VAR room came to the conclusion that the ref didn't stop play before they ball went in and no one can be blamed. It was just justice that it was a Man U player who injured him - but that was impossible for the ref to see in live. In short, the rules say he needs to stop the game when the keeper is injured. It happens all the time. How often do you see play continue with the keeper injured on the floor? That's a bit of an overinterpretation considering keepers already have special attention when it comes to injuries. So they can already do that and get play stopped. I mean you sometimes get keepers that drop to the floor and the ref stops play. But they don't do that because the ref might not be able to blow the whistle in time. Just like you don't see many players feigning head injuries despite meaning the ref has to stop play immediatly in that instance too.
